The School of Society and Culture at the University of Plymouth is delighted to host the British Forum for Ethnomusicology and Royal Musical Association Research Students’ Conference from January 6 to 8, 2022. The conference is planned to take place in Plymouth and delegates are expected to present in-person, in order to allow for the maximum benefit of networking and social interaction (subject to government guidelines). We welcome UK and international postgraduates to present their research and compositions in an inclusive, friendly, and supportive atmosphere. The conference will include papers, panels, lecture-recitals, instrumental and electroacoustic composition workshops, specialist sessions (e.g. research skills, careers, etc.), social and networking events, and satellite activities. Note that there will be a very limited number of individual online paper presentations for those unable to travel due to SARS-CoV-2 restrictions; panels, lecture-recitals and compositions are planned to be entirely held in Plymouth.

The Research Students’ Conference is an opportunity for postgraduate students to share their work with a wide audience and to foster interdisciplinary connections across a variety of musical disciplines. Presentation and composition proposals can relate to any aspect of musical research including, but not limited to, musicology, ethnomusicology, music psychology, composition, audiovisual media, performance, creative practices, and research that cuts across disciplinary boundaries. We are delighted that The Hermes Experiment will be workshopping research students’ compositions. The electroacoustic composition workshop will be led by the Computer Music pioneer Professor Eduardo Miranda.

We are pleased to announce that the keynote lectures will be delivered by:

Amada Hsieh (Chinese University of Hong Kong), winner of the Jerome Roche Prize, on behalf of the RMA
Lindsey Copeland (University of Toronto), winner of the BFE Early Career Prize, on behalf of the BFE
